GOD SAVE THE KING - Amy Levy Poems


Poems » amy levy » god save the king


God save great George our king
    Long live our noble king,
    God save the king.
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
    God save the king.

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter his enemies,
    And make them fall:
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On him our hopes we fix,
    God save us all.

Thy choicest gifts in store,
On him be pleas'd to pour,
    Long may he reign.
May he defend our laws,
And ever give us cause,
To sing with heart and voice
    God save the king.

Lord grant that Marshal Wade
May by thy mighty aid
    Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush,
    God save the king.
